Since I was a kid, I always enjoyed frequenting diners as a place to sit and munch on a hamburger and drink a Coke. So the American diner has always had a soft spot in my heart. There is a diner located 15 minutes from my house called Don's of Traverse City, which I have visited from time to time. The hamburgers are great, and they come with excellent pickles. And the place oozes diner charm.
I asked a waitress today if I could photograph Don's on the inside, and her response was, "Sure. Go right ahead. Everyone else does whether we try to stop them or not!" So here are my impressions of a classic American diner.
